“Catching the fish with my son and seeing the look on his face! I enjoyed receiving his first award from a new experience that we shared together. This was overall wonderful and a memory I will cherish. Thank you for making that possible!” – Parent of Participant, Harlem Meer
“Great impact in my life, very humbled by the event and what we gave back to the kids.” – Shore Volunteer, Harlem Meer
This is a C.A.S.T. for Kids event designed to provide children with disabilities the opportunity to enjoy a quality outdoor recreational experience through the sport of fishing. Not all locations are conducive to hosting boating events. This event gives participants the opportunity to fish from shore.
Our C.A.S.T. for Kids events include lots of fun and celebration! You can expect 2-3 hours of fishing, a delicious lunch and an awards celebration where your child will receive a personalized plaque. The event will start at 9:00 am and will end at 1:00 pm. Please note a parent or guardian must be present with your child for the entirety of the event. Participation is limited to 20 children escorted by one parent due to park regulations for the event. If you are volunteering for this event you should expect about 5-6 hours of time at event, arriving before participants and staying after to help wrap things up. This is a day of fishing the children, families and volunteers will never forget!
